“On invariance and selectivity in representation learning,” Information and Inference: A Journal of the IMA 2016
Illustration by Christine Daniloff.
The workshop aims at bringing together leading scientists in deep learning and related areas within machine learning, artificial intelligence, mathematics, statistics, and neuroscience. [Participation is by invitation only.]
For three days we will bring together computer scientists/roboticists, cognitive scientists, and neuroscientists to share and discuss advances in integrated, multimodal approaches to the study of human intelligence. Registration is open for EU attendees.
